GASTONIA, N.C. — WIX Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products, has been named 2014 Car Supplier of the Year by Independent Motor Trade Factors Associated Ltd. (IFA), one of the largest motor factor buying groups in the United Kingdom.

WIX has been supplying IFA members with filters since 2013 and is the first supplier selected for the award within the first year of partnering with the organization.

“WIX Filters is a strong partner who shares our commitment to superior customer service and focus on achieving common goals,” said Tony Fyfe, chairman of IFA (pictured right). “WIX earned this recognition from our members due to its responsiveness to customer commitments and overall support for the growth of our members’ businesses.”

IFA members are experts in supplying vehicle parts to garages, workshops, car and van dealers, road haulage operators and the general public. Owned and operated by its members, IFA represents every aspect of the automotive aftermarket and focuses on strong partnerships with customers and suppliers.

Wayne Stevens, managing director for WIX Filtration in the United Kingdom, accepted the award for WIX.

“We are honored to be selected as IFA’s Car Supplier of the Year,” said Stevens (pictured left). “With a national network of over 200 branches across the United Kingdom and Ireland, IFA is the preferred partner for major component manufacturers and suppliers. Being selected as an IFA supplier offers instant access to the organization’s distribution network, and that helps WIX increase its presence and brand loyalty in the U.K.”

“We are honored to receive the Car Supplier of the Year award and look forward to continue providing world-class products and industry-leading order-fill rates for IFA members,” Ciurlik said. “This award confirms the strength of WIX’s commitment to service the aftermarket with quality products and industry leading services.”
